    If you're using VisualStudio 2008, you need SqlServer 2005 Express, if you intend to use SqlServer 2008, you must go to the 2010 version of VisualStudio can be downloaded at this link. http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/express

  • It could be worth trying downloading VS2010 C# express and see if that fixes the problem.
